To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they are proposing to make further changes to the contractual or financial arrangements of the Community Rehabilitation Company following the recent inspection report of HM Chief Inspector of Probation, Quality and Impact inspection: The effectiveness of probation work by the National Probation Service in London.
The report of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation (HMI Probation) published on 10 January focuses on the performance of the National Probation Service (NPS) in London. The NPS works closely with London Community Rehabilitation Centre (CRC), and as HMI Probation note, that relationship is much improved since the last inspection in 2016.
We will continue to work with both the NPS and CRC to improve probation services in London. We robustly manage CRC performance and will make further changes to contracts if that is necessary to ensure we are delivering a probation system that protects the public, rehabilitates offenders and commands the confidence of the courts.
